Diving in India

Quick facts

No matter what sort of diving you crave (short of ice diving), India is sure to deliver. Wildlife abounds, and bizarre underwater formations are the norm. Be sure to see the Dixon’s Pinnacles, near Andaman. These are some of the busiest cleaning stations in the area, and are an exceptional place to check out wildlife.

Wreck diving is another favorite, here. The Princess Royal, a ship that sank over two hundred years ago in a battle between Great Britain and France, is a wreck divers dream. There are cannons to see, as well as plenty of shards of ancient pottery, still lying in the depths.

Check out the many wall dives, as well. From Aravind’s Wall to the Wall off Havelock Island, there is plenty to see.

What to see

Manta rays peruse the depths in throngs, and make for a fantastic show as they head to cleaning stations. Flitting reef fish, colorful and diverse, make their way in and out of coral crevices. Sharks, too, are common, and you can see reef sharks as well as guitar sharks.

Be on the lookout for dugongs, manatee-like creatures that stay in the shallows near mangroves.
